Bryan, was nominated by tbe Democrats last week for Governor of Florida. Mark Hanna has been re-elected Chairman of the Republican National Committee, and will conduct tbe coming campaign on a gold basis. Canada will henceforth ohargeber Chinese resident a poll tax of one hundred dollars. This will necessi tate an advance in tbe price of wash ing. _ An attempt i* being made to unite all Catholic societies in this coun try into one political organization, tbe object of the consolidation being to insure united action by all Catho lics on matters affecting the welfare of tbe church. The plan has the support of prominent churoh digni taries and laymen. In Minnesota, North and South Dakota, tbe three heaviest wheat producing States in the Union, tbe wheat crop this year is estimated at 75,000,000 bushels as against 200, 000,000 bushels for the preceding year. This immense falling off is caused by drouth with which that seotion of country has suffered for tbe past two months. Of the President* of tbe United States seven have been members of tbe Masonic Order. They were Washington, Jackson, Polk, Uuoban an, Johnson, Oarfiold and McKinley. Washington was Master of his Lodge at Alexandria, Va.; Jackson was Grand Master for Tennessee, and linobanan was Deputy Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania. There is talk of an extra session of Congress to decide what coarse shall be taken by tbe United States in the pending Cbiuese difficulty. There would seem to be but one course open to this country, and that is to lei severely alone a scheme which has evidently been cut and dried by the foreign powers, the objeot of which i* tbe ultimate partition of the Chi nese empire. Uncle Sam wants none of it. A Utah man, who bad resided in that State since infsuoy, was denied naturalization papers last week be cause of ignorance. He oould neith er read nor write, and had no idea of the meaning of the Declaration of Independence, nor of the Constitu tion of the United States. And now oomes the information that three of the Utah delegates to the National Convention at Philadelphia contrib uted $60,000 each to Mark Hanna's campaign. And yet Utah is said to have a free school system, with night schools in the oities for the benefit of those who oan not afford to attend the day sessions. Such colossal ig norance ia to be pitied, and when the benighted inhabitants of that Com monwealth wander away from home the bunco steercr experiences no difficulty in relieving them of their surplus cash. Republican leaders are qnarreliDg among themselves over their plat form. General Grosvenor and oth ers obarge that something was sur reptitiously omitted from tbe plat form which was understood by the committee to be contained therein; and L. E. Quigg, the New York mem ber of tbe committee, takes it upon himself to deny the charge. The document, however, speaks for itself, and gives silent evidence of having been tampered with, and that, too, in suoh a hurried manner that there was no time to smooth down the rough plaoes. But it is a small mat ter to quarrel over, for the entire platform is a superfluity. Mr. McKinley stands upon a gold pedes tal, and beyond tbe one sentence, “We declare our steadfast opposition to the free and unlimited coinage of silver," the platform means nothing aud saya.less. n« UIAB’I ■OVIIERTB. ladleMKM Thai Komatblas Will Boon Drop, The heavyweight list of engineer ing, metallurgical and expert tal ent which has represented the mining interests of Captain DeLamar in this oountry for the past several years, appears to be rapidly disinte-* i grating. First came the resignation of D. C. Jackling, the eminent met allurgist, the man who solved the great problem of successfully and profitably treating the rebellious ores of the Merour district. Then Thom as H. Oxnam, chief of staff in the captain’s exploratory department withdrew, and now comes the an nouncement that Duncan MeViohie, Superintendent of the Golden Gate Mine, by whose knowledge of scien tific mining the “oave" system was introduced with such signal success, also wishes to be relieved. But that is not the end, Frank P. Swindler, general manager of the captain's DeLamar, Nevada, prop erties, has capped the climax by giv ing notice that he, also, intends to quit. He has asked to be relieved at the earliest convenience of the captain’s manager, bnt will not leave until his successor has been installed. This information comes straight, and there is no doubt that it is true. George Kislingbury, another mem ber of the captain’s corps of experts, is also on the list of those who have beoomo dissatisfied, and Dame Ru mor has it that the end is not yet. These different withdrawals from the captain's powerful staff has caused considerable gossip among mining men and many of them won der what it all means and where it will stop. Internal dissension is the accepted cause, but why it should become epidemic is a question that those professing some knowledge of the situation hesitate to answer, though they claim that the “cat will out of the bag" in the near future. As soon after the closing up of the Mercur De Lamar consolidation bus iness as the captain’s business abroad will permit, it is said that he will return to America, and a gentleman said yesterday that be was quite certain the captain would be here inside of ninety days, when, he pre dicted, there would be a great shak ing up in that gentleman's official household.—Salt Lake Heiald. EXPERT MINERS. Tbey Are In Demand at Fancy Mai nr lee In tbe Transvaal. To tbe scattered employes of the Transvaal telegrams from mine owners have been flying since the recent Brit ish advance, calling them from all parts of the earth to renewed duty at Johannesburg, where it is expected there will be active resumption of work. The good salaries proffered in duce acceptance. H. C. Behr, who left California last week, is credited with a proffer of $15,000 per annum and ex penses. Allen Kiukead, foreman of tbe Best & Belcher and Gould & Curry, of Virginia City, Nevada, is locally credited with receipt of a cablegram requesting him to report at the earliest date possible at Johannesburg, at a sal ary of $0,000 per annum. It is the pub lication of such announcements as these that so stimulate attendance at the mining schools, and make ambi tious young men desirous of taking up the study of mining.—Mining and Sci entific Press._ Nierra Msvnaln Tailings. Joseph Fisher has purchased the ore tailings at the base of the Sierra Nevada Mine waste dump from the Sierra Nevada Mining Company and is having them hauled to his cyanide mile in Six-Mile Canyon, where he has installed a plant to work them by the cyanide process, the returns from fifty tons having proved satis factory. The tailings pile contains between 15,000 and 18,000 tons and will net from 85,000 to 88,000. Nelby Ore Nhlpmeut Me turns The net returns from twelve car loads of Consolidated California ore, aggregating 297 tons and 847 pounds shipped to Selby 4 Co. smelter were 88,658 48. The average assay value of oar samples of the ore in bulk taken here was 850 27 per ton, while the average assay value given by Selby & Co. was only 814 30.— Virginia Gbroniole. Nwevla to ill* Nwoet.

Bishop Abiel Leonard of the Episcopal churoh vouchee for the following little story: In the early days of Durango as a mining camp the Episcopal bishop of Colorado went there, riding all the way from Denver over the moun tains and plains in stage coaches and and on horseback. The Durango clergyman laid great stress of this self-sacrifioe at the meeting that fol lowed, and suggested that the con gregation show its appreciation by a liberal contribution, the money to be nsed to help Christianize Colo rado. The man who came up to pass the hat for the collection was an old miner; the congregation was made up of miners. The first man to whom the bat was presented dropped in a silver quarter. The collector looked at it, then very deliberately reached back to his hip pocket and pulled out his revolver. This he pointed right at the man's eye, after cooking it carefully. "Take that thing out of there,” he said. "This is no ordinary occasion; nothing less than a dollar goes.” The collection was a good one.— Halt Lake Herald. _ ._ AH TO UIANT POWDKB. Id giant powder over a year old tbe glycerine in it is liable to crystal lize after that time, and the presence of a crystal in a stick of powder makes its handling dangerous. A scratching of that crystal, a jar of tbe stick, or a rubbing of one stick against aoother is likely to produce hd explosion. The best powder is that about six months old. Before that time the glycerine is liable to be soft. There is also danger of getting new powder too warm and melting tbe glyoerine. A drop falling an al most imperceptible distance will at once explode, aDd its concussion will be enough to explode all. Giant powder will sometimes burn without exploding, but the starting of a sin gle drop of the glycerine it contains, either by exciting tbe crystal when it is too old, or the melted drop when it is too new, is what does the mis chief.—Mining and Scientific Press. Floriaton's Paper Hill. C. T. Bender and W. 0. H. Martin yesterday visited the new paper mill at Floriston. They brought home a sample of brown wrapping paper made from the palp of Trackee river pine. This immense plant employs at the present time abont 150 men, but when they get the journals of the various machines down to their bearings and begin to make all kinds of paper 400 will be employed. The company has built fifteen cottages, hard finished, with bathrooms and all modern conveniences and will build more. They have laid oat a town in streets, and rent the cottages to their employes at a monthly rental of 310. The plant will before August be running at its fullest capaoity, turning out all kinds of paper.— Reno Gazette. Deep t'rwk Prospects. "I am not working in the Deep Creek country any more,” said Sam Oilson at the Callen yesterday, “bat the good staff is all there, and some day it will be brought out. The trouble is that people interested in Deep Creek have been too oonteni with surface mining. They gather up all the surfaoe or outoropping yield and then move on to another spot. Deep Creek is a deep mining proposition. The further down yon go the richer the mineral beoomes, and it is mainly because you cannot get a railroad to extend on surface indications that there has been no extension. Let mine owners sink shafts to reasonable depths and show by assays that there are large and profitable bodies of ore below, aod there will be no trouble about getting a railroad to Deep Creek.—Salt Lake Tribune.
